Just north of Who-ville, as I'm sure you all knew! Welcome to the first day of my first post of my first blog. Ever! Named for my favorite line in children's literature:
Three thousand feet up! Up the side of Mt. Crumpit,
He rode with his load to the tip top to dump it!
from How The Grinch Stole Christmas! by Dr. Seuss, as I'm sure you all knew!
One of my favorite lines. There are so many to choose from. Like:
And the Banderilleros were mad and the Picadores were madder and the Matador was so mad he cried because he couldn't show off with his cape and sword.
From The Story of Ferdinand by Munro Leaf-- you knew that one, right?
Speaking of literary references, I found this fascinating line from an oft-misquoted Emily Dickinson poem:
How dreary - to be - Somebody!
How public - like a Blog -
I didn't even know they had blogs back then!
Okay, Emily Dickinson did not have a blog. But don't you wish she did?
So, gentle reader, here is my question to you: whose blog do you wish you could read? I mean, if you could go back in a time machine and invent blogs so long ago that even Jane Austen could have had one, if she wanted (and you know she would!)
Thanks for visiting my first blog. Ever!
